San Francisco's Favorite Craft Fair

Interview with Carrie of Anemone Letterpress

November 26th, 2008

Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your business.

I started Anemone Letterpress after working as a fashion designer. I got to the point where I wasn’t happy doing fashion design anymore and needed a change. I have always been in love with graphic and surface design (both vintage and new) and after taking a few letterpress classes, I was hooked! We now have two presses and couldn’t be happier!

What are your favorite crafts and how did you first get involved with crafting?

Other than printing, I’m a bit of a jack-of-all-trades; I knit, I sew, I do a wee bit of embroidery and crochet. I started really early with the sewing thing. My grandmother, Meme taught me how to read patterns and sew. I still have her White sewing machine from the 30’s and it still works great!

What do you like best, coming up with ideas or executing them?

50/50. I have always, always loved seeing an idea through to fruition. When I design a card that I think is a winner, I can’t wait to get working on it and see what the final product looks like.

Are you super organized or messy?What does your workspace look like?

Um, organized chaos? No, I’m pretty organized, but my workspace isn’t like alot of other letterpress studios you see in the blogosphere; my print shop is shared with my husband’s woodworking space and his recording studio.

Any exciting future plans or developments in the works for your business?

Yes! A new website is coming soon and in the new year, we’ll be branching out to include weddings.
